So why am I back now? I've applied for a PhD to begin next Fall. I have a potential project, a potential supervisor, and I'm really positive about the whole thing.

So with that I really need to get myself back into a headspace I was three years ago, fresh out of a Masters and somewhat up to date with the research. I haven't been completely out of the loop - I've attended conferences, presented a poster here and there and even submitted a full paper to the last Evolang conference in Kyoto with a colleague. I went digging in France in the summer, and now feel less of a 'fake archaeologist'.
Hopefully, then, this marks a step towards that academic career I've been striving for - watch and see if it is!
